Repairing a Badly Edited Image

MultiTracer version 2

Manual or automated methods for editing images sometimes include errors that can be touched up more quickly than they can be re-edited. MultiTracer allows regions that were incorrectly removed to be replaced from one of the additional images.

To repair a badly edited volume:

  1. Load the badly edited volume as the first image volume
  2. Load the unedited version of the volume as an additional image volume
  3. Select the appropriate plane and orientation
  4. Define a structure or use the default structure
  5. Trace the region that you want moved from the unedited image to the edited image
  6. Modify your original trace if needed
  7. On the control panel at the bottom of the main window, press the "Replace Here..." button
  8. On the unedited image, click the region where you want to replace the original image.
  9. Continue replacing or editing until you have the final result you want
  10. Save the first image volume

Please note that MultiTracer will not allow replacement using data from a volume with a different data type (e.g., data from a volume of signed shorts cannot replace data in a volume of unsigned shorts nor in a volume of signed ints).
